Jodie Foster: Flight Plan

2.5 Stars

Last night we saw Flightplan. I wanted to see this even though I thought the trailer looked like it had a good chance of being really stupid. I really like Jodie Foster, and she usually makes good choices in the movies she does, so I was willing to take a chance on there being more to the story than what we were seeing in the trailer.

Like most movies, I would say it was just OK… nothing great. It had some moments that I thought were very interesting, but overall I thought the story required too many things to go just right, in order for events to unfold in the way that they did. It seemed a little far-fetched to me. I don’t want to say anymore, or I’ll give something away.

I also bumped my rating up just a bit because the movie did manage to keep me guessing for a while, trying to determine the real situation.

  1. After Jodi Foster’s performence in Panic Room, I vowed to take more serious the movies in which she appears in. I really don’t want to let Flightpan past and wait for it to come on on DVD because it takes away the whole movie experience. Thanks for the heads up and I’ll be see the film this week.

  2. this movie fell so short. i cannot believe they even left so much out of this movie. some things never even add up. i mean seriously…who were the two guys in the window…what was the signficance? and they gave no background info on anything, why they were tied to each other…why stuff was happening…i was so disappointed, to say the least. it gets half a star from me, it could have been so much better.

  3. I am a bit biased on this one since I am a big Jodie Foster fan. I enjoyed the movie, although I thought the ending was a little weak. Over all it was a pretty good suspense movie. Many people have commented this movie was similar to “Panic Room”, since I have not seen that, so I can’t say for sure.
